How awesome is it that I get to live where many people chose to vacation! I have never traveled to another town with so many activities in close proximity, whether you want to go to the lake or up to the mountain, Sandpoint has it all! Not only does my hometown have extreme beauty, but the vibe and community I have here is unmatchable. No where I have been has compared to the unbreakable friendships and bonds I have made here. I am beyond blessed, this is unquestionable the place I want to raise my kids someday!
Nice town that is growing quickly! Sandpoint is diversifying constantly, from foreign cuisine to the people who occupy it. Most people are friendly, and the town offers a great deal of scenery and athletic opportunity.
